Viva la France! Whether it’s Chardonnay or Pinot Noir from Burgundy, Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot from Bordeaux, Syrah from the Rhône Valley, Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley, or Champagne from… well, Champagne, French wines set the standard against which all other wines worldwide are judged. Since France offers a wide variety of grapes and regions. We will cover the wines from France in two courses, one this term and the second one in the fall of 2019. Kristen Lindelow will be our tour guide during this entertaining and educational program as we explore three wine regions of France, tasting six wines from the selected regions. We will talk about each region’s history, the wine’s characteristics, and what you should expect when you buy a bottle. There is a $35 fee for this course. The course coordinator will be provide instructions for payment before the first day of class.
